So it’s been a few days since my daunting and perhaps ill-advised “let’s chronicle every rasslin match I watch” endeavor began.
The update, after the jump.
The current list, including the match, the date of the show and when I watched the match:
1. Triple H vs. John Morrison, Tables Match, Smackdown! 1/9 episode (1/12)
2. Undertaker vs. Shelton Benjamin, Smackdown! 1/9 episode (1/12) (LOVED this match. Didn’t hurt that it had two of my favorites one on one)
3. Triple H vs. Miz & Chavo, Smackdown! 1/9 episode (1/12)
4. WWE Tag Titles-Carlito & Primo vs. Kendrick & Ezekiel, Smackdown! 1/9 episode (1/13)
5. Triple H vs. Big Show, Last Man Standing, Smackdown! 1/9 episode (1/13)
6. Billy White Cloud vs. Curt Hennig, Portland 5/8/82 (1/13) (Hennig looks like John C. Reilly’s character from Boogie Nights. I got an unedited copy of three Portland TV shows for a birthday present.)
7. Mike Miller vs. Rocky Johnson, Portland 5/8/82 (1/13)
8. 2 Out of 3 Falls-Dizzy Hogan, Rip Oliver & Matt Borne vs. Hacksaw Brett Sawyer & Andre the Giant, Portland 5/8/82 (1/13)
I think the most amusing thing I’ve watched so far is when Andre issued a challenge for a six-man tag match at the end of that Portland episode. Then, Rocky Johnson essentially had to translate what Andre said with an oh so smooth, “I think what he’s saying is…” segue.
9. Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. The Miz, Raw 1/12 (1/13)
10. Intercontinental Title-William Regal vs. CM Punk, Raw 1/12 (1/13)
11. Randy Orton vs. Kane, Raw 1/12 (1/13)
12. Shawn Michaels vs. John Cena, Raw 1/12 (1/15)
13. Necro Butcher vs. Abdullah the Butcher, IWA-EC 11/5/04 (Short and filled with gore, as would be expected. Not every day you see an obese black man gouging at someone’s head with a broken wine bottle. Abby busted out the big running elbow, which is always a good thing.) (1/15)
14. Don Fuji vs. Susumu Yokosuka, Dragon Gate Osaka Special 11/23/06 (1/16; completed 1/18) (PHENOMENAL match. Enjoyed the psychology, as well as some very creative offense working down specific body parts, like Susumu slamming Fuji down on his knees repeatedly, including once off the top rope.)
15. Sting vs. Hernandez, Impact 1/15 (1/17)
